Article Delivery UO Libraries

Article Delivery Service

The UO Libraries offers  a free service for University of Oregon faculty, students and staff  whereby articles and book chapters held in the Libraries' print collection are digitized and made available for patrons through their ILLiad accounts (copyright limitations apply).  Material is generally provided within 3 days.  This serivce is also available to Oregon Card holders, members of the Alumni Association and UO Associates for a $15 fee per article request.

For the quickest delivery, use FindText.

To request an article, look up the citation in any of the library's online article indexes, then click the FindText journal articles link. If the article appears in a print journal the library owns, and is not already available in electronic format,  you may request delivery by selecting the "Request this item" link  under the "Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery" heading.

Alternatively, choose the Journal Titles tab in the library's homepage search box, click the FindText link that appears, enter complete citation information on the form, and proceed from there.

Citations not found with FindText

To request book chapters or articles for which you cannot find a record in FindText, please use ILLiad.  Using the “Place a Request for Article” option, enter the citation for the item you need digitized and submit the request.  Staff will pull and scan the item for you, and you will be notified when it is available through your ILLiad account.


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code), governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
